Mascarade Emerging Artists 2022/24 will run from 1 September 2022 to 30 June 2024.
Our training framework is based on insights from performance psychology research in a variety of domains such as sports, business, health and education. As a multi-layered, integrative training framework with internal follow-up systems, it comprises and connects a number of theories and models in the areas of coaching, practice and performance.
OUR ARTISTIC TEAM
“Self-regulation is the key to a successful performance. We teach our artists how to regulate their emotions, their thoughts, their attention, indeed their entire learning and performance process.
My job is to allow artists to perform without excuses and without the fear of failure, to perform because they have a deep seated desire to express the human condition through music.“Dr Ralph Strehle, Director of Performance at Mascarade Emerging Artists
“I’m interested in the individuality of the artist, in trying to help each singer find and express their unique musical voice. From the moment we are born, we breathe and use our voices to express ourselves with pitch, modulation and dynamic through a natural bodily engagement prompted by the relevant emotion. I work with singers to find that same natural emotional and physical connection with their material, lifting it from something “learned” to something real and personal.”Julia Lynch, Joint Head of Music at Mascarade Emergent Artists
“There isn’t another instrument which can touch or affect as much as the human voice. When it’s in place and expressive, there’s a veracity, a fourth dimension that it enters. There is nothing so powerful and nothing so simple. However, it is difficult to achieve this. My aim is always to try to help the singer find this freedom of expression, and to sing with artistry, beauty and longevity.“Jonathan Papp, Joint Head of Music at Mascarade Emerging Artists
